LOCH Lomond and the Trossachs Na­tional Park wants to find lo­cal he­roes and thank them for their work.

The com­mu­nity part­ner­ship for the na­tional park dis­trib­utes an­nual Cham­pion Awards recog­nis­ing the work that or­gan­i­sa­tions and in­di­vid­u­als carry out.

Last year, one of the win­ners was Cal­lan­der-based Lynne Schroder.

She is a found­ing mem­ber of Cre­ative in Cal­lan­der, a not-for­profit or­gan­i­sa­tion run by artists and mak­ers to sup­port lo­cal arts and crafts.

Ms Schroder said: ‘Re­ceiv­ing the award was a great hon­our but it’s a com­mu­nity thing.

‘I could not have done it with­out Jimmy [my hus­band] and the amaz­ing vol­un­teers on the ground.

‘I hope it in­spires oth­ers to learn that vol­un­teer­ing gives you back more than you can give.’
